We enjoyed our trip to the Precious Moments chapel. Our only disappointment was that not all parts of the complex are open in the winter. It would have been nice to visit the musuem.

This was a very unique place to visit. There was a huge garden and chapel that displayed life sized figurines of the precious moments characters. It was a great place to go with your family

As a collecter of these figurines since I was a child this place was almost like a shrine to my childhood. With a beautiful design and serine atmosphere this place captives you heart and soul.

This is such a nice place to stroll through. So good to see that some things are still around for the right reason. Stop and take a stroll through the grounds for tree, can't find many places like that anymore!

It's not there anymore
I'm looking to visit the chapel sometime in June. I will be travelling from Toronto, Ontario and was wondering what is the best itinerary for a trip there. I'm looking to do a 4 days travel, so 1 day at the chapel and the rest maybe in areas nearby. Is there an itinerary recommended by fellow advisors? My husband and I more interested in food and local culture. I'm looking to fly into a major airport and then drive around. Your feedback will be greatly appreciated!
